Here is some news from Oregon, USA. A 26-year-old woman was chased by police in a stolen car. The chase lasted several miles and reached speeds of up to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h).

When they were crossing a bridge, the woman stopped and leapt off the bridge. The water was freezing cold, but she was pulled out and taken to hospital just moments after jumping. She only had minor injuries.

Difficult words: chase (follow somebody quickly to catch them), leap (jump), minor (small).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
